Encounters in Borderlands: Portugal, Ceuta, and the 'Other Shore
,'
a new collection edited by Martin Malcolm Elbl, presents studies by Kátia Brasilino Michelan, Susani Silveira Lemos França and Michelle Souza e Silva, Marcelo Santiago Berriel, Luís André Nepomuceno, Maria Isabel João, Ivana Elbl, Martin Malcolm Elbl, Jordi Mas Garriga, Luís Costa e Sousa, and Ana Teresa de Sousa. Encounters in Borderlands seeks to highlight some of the more subtle and obscure echoes that expansion, conquest, encroachment and pushback leave in the written and material record. Such echoes reflect a diversity of drivers. These range from curiosity and repulsion to attraction and rejection, altruism and thirst for gain, search for security and search for dominance, self-shaping as a polar opposite of the 'other,' and much more -- all the way to converse states of virtually becoming the 'other' in ways that are either conscious and voluntary or unwitting and involuntary. The entire game of 'global chess' as well as the post factum memorializing of specific developments is intricately shaped by these. Words and artifacts are not a straightforward record or manifestation of the forces at play, and it is worthwhile to pay attention to them in contexts where meanings are veiled or ambiguous and where the sources of those meanings may need to be identified more closely. The first part of the collection tracks such echoes in political and historical narratives, descriptive texts, inspirational and doctrinal literature, and in the 'staging' of ideology and memory. The second part explores discrete aspects of the military and material record and addresses issues of cultural borrowing, ostensible and de facto strategy and tactics, situational learning and the lack thereof, toponymic palimpsests, and cross-cultural continuities and discontinutities in the built environment.

Encounters in Borderlands: Portugal, Ceuta, and the 'Other Shore,' une nouvelle collection dirigée par Martin Malcolm Elbl, présente des études par Kátia Brasilino Michelan, Susani Silveira Lemos França et Michelle Souza e Silva, Marcelo Santiago Berriel, Luís André Nepomuceno, Maria Isabel João, Ivana Elbl, Martin Malcolm Elbl, Jordi Mas Garriga, Luís Costa e Sousa et Ana Teresa de Sousa. Encounters in Borderlands cherche à mettre en lumière certains échos assez subtils et obscurs que l'expansion, la conquête, l'empiètement et le refoulement laissent dans les archives écrites et matérielles. Ces échos reflètent une diversité de facteurs. Ceux-ci s'étalent depuis la curiosité et la répulsion jusqu'à l’attraction et au rejet, à l’altruisme et à la soif du gain, à la recherche de sécurité et de domination, à l’auto-façonnage en tant que contraire absolu de « l’autre », et bien plus encore -- jusqu’aux états de pratiquement devenir « l'autre » d'une manière soit consciente et volontaire soit inconsciente et involontaire. Tout le « grand jeu d'échecs » à l'échelle globale, ainsi que les commémorations postérieures de développements spécifiques en sont imprégnées. Les mots et les choses n'enregistrent pas les forces en jeu d'une manière simple. Il s'avère donc utile de les examiner de plus près dans des contextes où les significations se trouvent voilées ou ambiguës et où l'on puisse avoir besoin d'identifier les sources de ces significations d'une manière plus serrée. La première partie de la collection retrace de tels échos dans les récits politiques et historiques, dans des textes descriptifs, dans la littérature moralisante et doctrinale, ainsi que dans des « mises en scène » d'idéologie et de la mémoire. La deuxième partie explore le registre militaire et matériel et aborde des questions d’emprunt culturel, de stratégies et de tactiques ostensibles et factuelles, d’apprentissage par une mise en situation et de ses faillites, de palimpsestes toponymiques, et de continuités et discontinuités interculturelles dans l’environnement bâti.
